Low Carb Mozzarella Sticks
Servings: 4 people
Want a convenient snack or appetizer? Keep some of these easy to make cheesy appetizers in your freezer for a quick bite any time.
Cut string cheese in half crosswise.
Beat 1 egg in small bowl. Set aside.
Place almond flour, Parmesan cheese, coconut flour, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and salt in zipper sandwich bag. Shake bag to blend.
Dip each piece of mozzarella into the beaten egg and then coat by shaking in the sandwich bag. Freeze for at least one hour.
Heat oil in small frying pan to at least half inch high. Temperature of oil should be about 325-375°F. Higher temperatures tend to brown too quickly with cheese melting out. Air frying works too using a temperature of about 370 to 400°F for about 5 to 7 minutes.
Cook each coated piece of mozzarella in the hot oil until browned on all sides. Enjoy!
Makes 1 dozen mini sticks. A serving is 3 sticks.
Salt can be adjusted to taste. I tried ¼ teaspoon at first, but made another batch with ½ teaspoon and it tasted much better.
For a double coating: Coat and freeze, then take them out and coat them and freeze them again for at least 30 minutes before frying.
